Around June last year, Robin Olsen to Watford was a thing.

AS Roma were trying to get rid of the Sweden international after a less than impressive season between the sticks, and a price tag of €10-15m was touted.

Watford, still in the Premier League then, were somewhat interested, but the move never materialised.

Olsen eventually ended up at Cagliari on loan where things didn’t really improve, and the 30-year-old now finds himself in a similar position once again with Roma wanting to get rid.

They’ve seemingly accepted a loan is the best way forward for now, and Watford are brought into it again.

Following their relegation to the Championship, the Hornets are somewhat overhauling their squad, and Il Tempo in Italy reckon Olsen could be a part of those changes.

The local newspaper state the Swede is going ‘towards Watford’, who will then ‘purchase him definitively if they return to the Premier League’.

This basically means Olsen would arrive at Vicarage Road in a loan deal for the season, with a clause stating that should the Hornets get immediately promoted back to the top-tier, they’d have to pay a fee, much like what Leeds United did with Illan Meslier.

This is all backed up by Corriere dello Sport, who are a bit more reserved, explaining that Roma are ‘waiting’ for the offer from Watford before detailing the same deal as Il Tempo.
